“I was drawn to Cyclebetes by the fact that it originated with a bunch of guys who all loved cycling, and who banded together to help a friend keep a promise. Cycling has always been a passion of mine, and I have an opportunity to draw awareness to Type I Diabetes in an extraordinary way.” ~Anthony Sedlak
